Arnold Southcott (1887–1902)

An accident, which was attended with fatal results, occurred to-day at the rear of the residence of Mr. J. Retallick, Moonta Bay. Two lads, Percy Beaglehole and Arnold Southcott, were driving in a spring-cart with their uncle (Mr. W. Beaglehole), a son of Mr. John Beaglehole, sen., of this town, when the horse shied at a pile of stones and capsized the cart. Mr. W. Beaglehole and Master Percy Beaglehole were thrown clear of the vehicle, but young Southcott was pinned to the ground, the side of the dray resting upon him. He was extricated from his dangerous position as quickly as possible and conveyed to his grandfather's house in the town, but died shortly afterwards, death being due to an injury to the lungs. Percy Beaglehole, who is a son of Mr. J. Beaglehole, jun., of Moonta, was also seriously injured, and now lies in a dangerous condition. Mr. W. Beaglehole escaped with a shaking. The deceased lad, who was about 15 years of age, was the son of Mr. J. H. Southcott, of Gilles-street, Adelaide, and was spending his holidays with his relatives at Moonta.
